    It looks like Polybrush is currently unusable in 2018.3

    When attempting to paint textures onto a mesh with a Polybrush/Standard Texture Blend material attached, I'm not seeing anywhere to chose a texture to brush. Also, the console is constantly sending out these errors:

    IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.
    Polybrush.z_ShaderUtil.GetMeshAttributes_Legacy (UnityEngine.Material material, Polybrush.z_AttributeLayout[]& attributes) (at Assets/ProCore/Polybrush/Code/Editor/Utility/z_ShaderUtil.cs:150)

    Let me know if you need more information

    Great not so great news. Glad that it is not me, seems like others are having the same issue across the board. I was going insane. Can not wait for the fix!

    We'll get a preview build out as soon as it's stable, for sure. Having others help to test and break things before release is super, super appreciated!

    I am looking forward to this. The polybrush blend shaders just render black surfaces for me. I would love to help test the next version. What should I do to not miss the preview releases?

    We'll make posts here, Twitter, maybe even a blog thing when it's ready, since we'll definitely want help testing things out- thanks very much!

    Update: preview should be available very soon. Make sure you have "Show Preview Packages" enabled in the Package Manager. This week or next.

    while we wait for compatibility, can anyone point me to a working-with-unity-2018.3 vertex painter I can use to paint textures onto 3d models in the scene view? Like basically something like what the terrain editor does for painting terrain textures, just for 3d objects, in my case just to put different textures on different parts of the floor, like carpet, stone, wood, etc...

    Thanks

    I was thinking I'm getting crazy. Was searching for hours to fix it. But it's just with the latest version. I'm looking forwards to the new release. Thanks!

    Any news on this? Polybrush's texture/vertex painting tools are a critical part of the Unity toolkit (for me at least).

    Could you please mention on the asset store page that texture/color paining doesn't work with 2018.3?

    I seem to have problems with vertex painting on meshes exported from maya, At first, if already vertex painted, and applyed material, It shows all the materials etc, But when i try to paint with polybrush, The whole mesh just turns gray, almost like unity standard material... Any idea what causes this?
    I'll keep searching for solutions meanwhile~

    Edit: I sort of fixed it by exporting as obj instead of fbx from maya

    Hey @gabrielw_unity,

    It would be really nice to get any new Updates regarding PolyBrush. It has been stated that it would come out really soon since January and now it is March.

    We would love to help with Bug finding and testing. Maybe a GitHub for the project would be nice. It really helped with the Development of NavMesh.
    Even if the current version has a few bugs, it would still be better then the current state that is completely broken in 2018.3. Especially with the Render Pipelines.

    With friendly Regards
    Jan aka. Sonorpearl

    Some info that may help. I am having the same issue as the op, but only on my mac machine using build settings for iOS. Everything seems to be working fine on my windows machine with build settings set to Android. I have unity 2018.3.9f1 on the mac, and unity 2018.3.8f1 on the windows.

    Well, something is happening. The repo shows that there's some progress on it going on. There's been a preview.13 on the 20th of March. I tried it and it's broken in 2018.3, so there's still things to do.

    I rewrote my texture blend shader to work with vertex colors for the time being, so I'm assigning colors with ProBuilder for now. It's annoying, but what can you do. It's less work than making PolyBrush work myself. So I'm waiting eagerly for a working release. :)

    6 months since the issue was reported. It's a nice tool and thanks for all your work, but this is too slow. Looks like it is time to ditch polybrush.

    This is pretty disappointing given the fact Unity made a reasonably big deal about buying and incorporating these tools.
